Rob,

Input much appreciated. Thing that got me long time ago was that the obvious was too oft overlooked by the mfg. End aesthetic response of containing/distorting the field would by necessity be good or bad depending on the individual pickup design. Field containment would reduce noise definitely, but what the warp effect has on quality of sound is entirely trial and error and pickup specific. A quarter inch difference in a containment bar could significantly alter quality and nature of the pickup. Gibson single-coil pickups just happened to come out ahead of the curve forcing north poles from the bottom, but doesn’t mean the same operation on an Ibanez something-or-other might screw things up badly.

Any knowledge on an available ferromagnetic foil? Off the deep end, but think I’m on to something borderline prodigal.

Thanks,
John
